Album Covers Quiz II

For our (in)famous annual pop quiz I made a slideshow of 20 album covers, some easy, some a little bit more difficult, none of thems as awful as the above one, you can see it (hopefully...)
here, good luck!

Adding to Carole's there's the Adele19 album at number one I think. We got the Duffy, the Led Zep and the Police as well. Great idea for a quiz!

1. Adele
18. Knarls Barkley - The odd couple
20. REM - Accelerate
And I 'know' 3, 8, 10, 14 - brain racking time...

glasshalfempty said...

Sorry FP, you got there first with Adele, so it's a dond...

Only knew 4 - Carole already had them all. Personally, I love the Yvonne Me Lallas cover - they don't make 'em like that anymore. A real work of art!

3 is iron and wine, can't remember the LP name
8 is Kate Nash's "Made Of Bricks"
10 is Arctic Monkey's Fave Worst Nightmare
13 is The WOmbats "Tales of Love, Loss & Desparation

without cheating
2 LedZep IV
7 Stones It's only rock n roll
11 Soundgarden Superunknown
12 Poilce Outlands D'Amour
15 Van the Man Keep it Simple
16 Ramones Road to Ruin
17 Duffy Rockferry (but only because Amazon suggests it whenever it can't find what I'm looking for)
19 Air Moon Safari

Gosh that's eclectic!

Good work you all!

We only need 3 (album title), 4, 9 and 14

9 is probably the hardest, it is a very popular (but not that good) Dutch band, in our quiz all the 25 teams identified it correctly...

Strange that no-one yet has identified number 4...

steenbeck said...

Jay Z American Gangster?

glasshalfempty said...

Is 14 Wilco - Sky blue sky?

TonNL said...

Steenbeck & glasshalfempty: correct!
That leaves the album title of #3, and I will give you number 9: it's Dutch band Kane with their album "Fearless", Maroon5-like drivel, but for some incomprehensibe reason (probably the singer's good looks) immensely popular by young Dutch girls....

wolves (song of the shepherds dog)
wolves makes a great subject for a compilation..
